Slovakia has attracted a larger number of British holidaymakers in recent years. The country has built a solid reputation for affordable nature holidays and cheap ski holidays. The capital Bratislava is an up-and-coming short break destination. Slovakia receives very few direct flights from the UK. The only airline with regular direct flights is Ryanair. All flights head for the capital Bratislava. Smaller airports served by passenger airlines include Košice and Poprad, but neither has flight from the UK.
The main airport for the city of Bratislava. The airport is 10km from the city centre. The busiest airport in Slovakia but very quiet compared to airports in neighbouring Austria. There is a good bus service into to the city centre. Economical fares with Ryanair from Stansted, Luton, Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool and Edinburgh.
